It’s time to get cracking on your holiday shopping and hopefully you’re planing to give the children in your life the gift of reading. Look no further than these hand-picked book lists. You’ll find a broad range of topics to choose from: Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Sports & Science, Animals, Arts & Crafts, iPad Apps, and Classic Literature. There is certainly something for everyone.
From nicely illustrated carols to tales for the naughty and nice, our holiday gift to you is this list of wonderful Christmas books. Let the jingling begin!
The littlest ones should not miss out on any fun Christmas reading. There are plenty of sturdy-paged board books for babies and toddlers.
This list features all of the typical elements: menorah, dreidel, latke, songs of the Maccabees and a visit from grandma.
The following books have been selected for their unique stories, poems, or fascinating facts, and expressive illustrations or photographs.
This is a book list for sports enthusiasts, young Einsteins-in-the-making, myth busters, restless minds and grown men! Something for everyone.
You want something well-written, tried and tested, but perhaps with updated illustrations that will tantalize any young mind? Feast your eyes on this list.
The holiday season can bring out the “Martha” in all of us. Unfortunately, ’tis the season to zap away the time required to be a “Martha.” So … this book list (or book-ish, at least) can be used a few different ways.
From the more traditional pieces of literature to the fun, book-related games; these apps are a great way to kick-start a new iPad library.
This is our “Horse Lovers” fictional book list, hand selected for young horse enthusiasts.
A great selection of Star Wars books for the young and old, alike. Give the gift of reading, you will! Do or do not… there is no try.
There are definitely enough to satisfy the needs of anyone looking to teach the history, meaning, and/or spirit of Kwanzaa.
